Grandparents are special people. They are one of the first people to welcome you into this world. They love you unconditionally. They spoil you. They give endless advice. They encourage you. They do it all.
Grandparents are always there for us, offering advice while we get older. Always attending important school / sport events. Making sure we pick the right college and help us with whatever it is to make sure we get there and get the degree at the end.
One thing that we often forget is that, as we get older, so do they. Time passes so much faster than we realize and we never know how much longer we’ll get with them. They never get tired of hearing thank you or I love you. Whether you realize it or not, that simple two minute phone call you give them actually means the world to them.
Never forget to thank them for standing by your side while you figured out what and who you wanted to be. Thank them for being such amazing role models and always giving amazing advice. Thank them for the endless presents and love. But most of all, thank them for being them and loving you unconditionally.
There is no doubt in my mind that my grandparents are two of the most important people in my lives. They helped raise me, they are the reasons I’m in college, they constantly give me support and encouragement in everything I do, and most of all, they are my rocks in life. Of course I’m beyond grateful for my parents, friends and so on, but when it comes to my grandparents, they’re my everything.
So to my gram and pop,
As your granddaughter, I want you to never forget how much you mean to me. I owe a lot of who I am and where I am right now to you guys. If it wasn’t for you guys I don’t think I'd be half of the girl I am today. I hope one day I'm as strong and as smart as you two. Your love for each other only makes me hope that one day I find that kind of love when I’m older too. You guys have made me strong and never let me give up in anything I do. Yeah sure, sometimes you were hard on me, but it only helped me. With our endless memories, I know i'll never take them for granted and will always cherish them. Thank you for always being my support system but most of all, thank you for always being my best friends.
